Building a Balanced Vegan Bowl

Protein. In the last couple of years this has become a buzz word in our society, with brands using it as a selling point, and people basing their meals on that particular food group, however despite the importance of having plenty of protein in our diets, there are other elements on the plate that have...

Are You Shooting Yourself in The Foot?​

“If you get shot by an arrow, do you shoot yourself with another?” This is one of my favourite Buddhist parables, as I simply think it resonates with most people. How many times have you found yourself in a not-so-ideal situation, and rather than dealing with it, you simply made yourself feel worse? I can... Continue Reading →

As a Vegan: Social Scenes

Being in the minority during celebrations and gatherings can be, and often is, difficult; at times, you may think it is impossible that your family will accept your choice and not question you at every opportunity that arises. However, there are things each person can do to feel more included without being overly pushy. This... Continue Reading →

As a Vegan: Friendships​

This is a broad subject, but not as broad as Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s shoulders, and so I deem it manageable.  Friendships are the essence of life, said someone some time ago. Friendships are difficult as f*ck, said I, every day of my life. Without the whole plant-based label they are difficult enough but I... Continue Reading →

How To Break Up With Your Phone

The average adult spends 3.5 hours on a mobile a day, that is 1277.5 hours in a year which converts to a... Continue Reading →

Shopping: The Modern Olympics

Ready. Set. Go. That is what entering a shop can often feel like. The big bright banners enticing you, slogans that motivate you, and of course the intense competition of other offer hunters, the atmosphere is almost heavy with adrenaline, a description that can't be used for my purse or bank card. We are greedy,... Continue Reading →

New Year, Old Me

It's that time of the year again, like all the Christmas songs quote, but is it always so beautiful and stress-free as we anticipate it to be? I know it defiantly isn’t for me. The time, between Christmas and the new year, when everyone is feeling a little heavier perhaps, and maybe a little dizzy... Continue Reading →
